Kashmiri acid attack victim let down by law

gul-naaz_350_071912040002.jpgShe waited for justice for seven years but it was all in vain. Gul Naaz came to know earlier this week that a court has exonerated the men accused of throwing acid on her and leaving her disfigured for life

Her fault: She had dared to open a beauty parlour in Kishtwar district of Jammu.
"Two men who threw acid on me were arrested. They were kept in the police station for a night and released the next day. The case went to the sessions court. I was called once to record my statement. I was told that I'll be called again, but it never happened," Naaz, 34, said.
"The police informed me on Tuesday that the case has been closed and the accused exonerated by the court," she said, adding that she plans to file an appeal against the decision.
In 2006, Naaz, who has three children, opened a beauty parlour in Kishtwar to earn her livelihood as her husband had suffered serious injuries in a traffic accident.
She said two men - Sajjad Ahmad and Liyqat Ali - told her to close down the beauty parlour or she would have to face serious consequences.
"I just laughed at Sajjad, who was also the imam of a local mosque. I thought they were joking. But one day they executed the threat," Naaz said.
The attack damaged one eye completely. "Whatever money I had, I spent that on my treatment. All these years I have gone through hell for nothing and those who did it are roaming freely," she said.
Kulbir Singh, additional SP of Kishtwar, said the police filed a chargesheet against the accused some months later. "We don't know what happened in the court," he said.
According to the police, there seemed to be some personal rivalry between the woman and the men, which led to the attack.

A woman’s complaint against her son, accusing him of having sold his sister, has yet to be registered with the police because of a jurisdiction dispute between Saddar and City stations.
Station House Officers Najam Butt (Saddar) and Nawaz Sial (City) both said that Solangi village, the suspect’s hometown, did not fall in their jurisdiction.
In her complaint, Basheeran Bibi accused her son Muhammad Anser of having sold his 12-year-old sister to his two brothers-in-law for Rs20,000. She said the two men had sexually assaulted the child and forced her to do their household chores.
Basheeran Bibi said her daughter had escaped detention and arrived home in Solwe Awan village a couple of days ago. Talking to The Express Tribune, the woman said her son had earlier sold her for Rs30,000 to a man in Gujranwala a year ago. “He wanted me to marry the man but I never signed the marriage deed. I fled as soon as I found the chance to do so,” she said. She said Anser was arrested for this by City police but was later released on bail. “I withdrew the FIR later because he came to me and apologised,” she said.
She said when she later married a brick kiln worker in Solwe Awan and moved in with him, her son refused to let her take her daughter with her.

SUN NEWS EXCLUSIVE - LCBO sells booze to 14-year-old wearing burka



TORONTO - Three liquor stores recently sold booze to a 14-year-old boy whose identity was hidden because he was wearing a full-length burka and face veil at the time, a Sun News Network exclusive has found.
The teenager, clad in an Islamic female's traditional garb of a burka, headscarf and facial covering, shopped in three different LCBO stores north of Toronto last Wednesday.
In each location, the Grade 8 student paid cash for a bottle of sambuca liqueur.
Ontario's Liquor Licence Act requires that before liquor is sold, government-issued photo ID -- a drivers licence, for example -- must be inspected if the buyer is suspected of being under the legal drinking age of 19.
Under the LCBO's Check 25 program, employees can ask for ID from people who appear under age 25 -- a policy implemented in 1997 to prevent young people who appear older than their actual age from purchasing alcohol.
The stunt was co-ordinated and video recorded by Sun News Network host David Menzies, who has made a career out of lambasting Canada's politically correct institutions.
Menzies said the unopened bottles -- totalling just over $80 -- were promptly taken from the teen.
But Menzies suggested the fact the boy was never asked to uncover his face or show photo identification at multiple store locations reveals a deeply ingrained reluctance on the part of Canadian institutions to challenge cultural practices, even when they conflict with broader societal goals such as preventing underage drinking.

"The reason why you have to unveil is that is photo ID is absolutely useless if you don't see the actual face of the person," Menzies said, adding he came up with the idea after an acquaintance told him he had seen this happen at various LCBO locations.
"They didn't ask for an unveiling, and they didn't even ask for (photo identification) ... You say you're socially responsible, you have the policy codified ... but nobody follows it," Menzies said Monday.
LCBO spokesman Chris Layton said in an e-mail that employees have a responsibility to view customers' faces as part of the age-verification process, and if a customer's face is covered, "Staff are required to ask the customer to remove the covering."
This includes religious face coverings, as well, Layton later said in a phone interview.
"Maybe we need to remind our staff of their obligations under the Liquor Licence Act," Layton said, insisting the employees may have been trying to be "culturally sensitive" in each situation.
"The last thing we want is minors purchasing alcohol ... That would be something we would certainly want to look into."
In his earlier e-mail, Layton mentioned past examples of customers attempting to buy booze with their faces covered, such as "a customer wearing a full-face helmet," and another wearing a Halloween mask. These customers, however, were told to reveal themselves.
Menzies, long a critic of the LCBO's "monopoly" over liquor sales in the province, attempted to meet with liquor board officials early Monday morning to ask why they were not enforcing their own policy but was sent an e-mail from Layton stating that stores "comply with the requirements of the Liquor License Act," and that they were not interested in discussing the matter on camera.
Menzies added it is ironic the LCBO places a strangle hold on the sale of liquor because it considers it a potentially dangerous and addictive substance, but that a 14-year-old burka-wearing teen can easily purchase booze at three of its stores, on the same day.

He then pointed to some jurisdictions in the United States where private retailers can sell booze but face stiff penalties if caught selling any of it to minors.
In the state of Oregon, grocery stores can sell beer, wine and spirits but face a month-long suspension and possible criminal charge if caught for a third time selling booze to an underager.
And in Alabama, a private retailer can face a $1,000 fine, suspension, or the complete revocation of their liquor licence if caught selling to an underage person three times.

ABOVE: Polics have swooped on a Bradford based child sex ring
Police raided homes in Bradford and nearby Keighley, West Yorks
15th July 2012

By Scott Hesketh

TEN grooming suspects have been arrested over claims that they used a 14-year-old girl in a vile sex ring.

Armed officers swooped on the men, all of Asian origin, after the teenager told detectives she had been sexually assaulted.

Police raided homes in Bradford and nearby Keighley, West Yorks. The men have been released on bail pending further inquiries.

An investigation has now been launched into possible links with the depraved gang caged in May for a total of 76 years for raping and abusing up to 47 girls. 

Nine men, including the ring-leader from nearby Rochdale, were jailed but detectives are hunting more than 40 other suspected gang members. 

A senior police source said last night: “At this stage it is unclear if the latest arrests have any connection with the last high-profile convictions.

“But detectives certainly cannot rule it out as there are more suspects still believed to be at large.” 

The victims are plied with alcohol and lured to takeaways before being passed around for sex.

It is not the first time police have had complaints from young girls in Keighley, now seen as a dangerous child sex grooming hotspot.

Community leaders in Keighley, including the town’s MP and councillors, were briefed by police about the operation on Wednesday.

A spokesman for West Yorkshire police said: “There were ten arrests made across the Bradford district on suspicion of serious sexual offences. All ten have been bailed. Because it is an ongoing investig-ation the force cannot disclose further information at this time.”

Eight of those arrested are understood to be from Keighley and two from Bradford.

Keighley Central Labour councillor Abid Hussain said: “The police have done what they should be doing in arresting these people. It is disappointing but I fully support the police and will work with them.”

Keighley MP Kris Hopkins said: “I was made aware that it was a serious operation and I was grateful for that information. I want the police to be able to carry out their investigation fully and to make sure that a fair process is put in place to let justice prevail.”

Last month, West Yorkshire’s chief constable Sir Norman Bettison warned that grooming children for sex was a growing problem that cut across all communities.

He met Muslim community leaders at a summit to tackle the problem.

Mr Bettison said: “I believe there is a problem that is very widespread, not just in Yorkshire, not just within the Muslim or Asian community, but there are girls who are vulnerable and those vulner-abilities are more and more often these days exploited.

“What these cases have done is they have shone a light on this type of exploitation.

“West Yorkshire Police is determined to ruthlessly pursue anyone who is committing criminal exploitation and bring them before the courts. It’s very important we have the support of the community.”

Does Swallowing One’s Saliva Break the Fast?

Question and answer details
As-salamu `alaykum. Dear scholars? I am wondering: does swallowing saliva during Ramadan nullify the fast? Thank you.
Wael Shihab
Wa `alaykum as-salamu wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuh.
In the Name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful.
All praise and thanks are due to Allah, and peace and blessings be upon His Messenger.

Dear brother, thank you for your question that shows your interest in Islam and your commitment to best perform your fasting.
As for your question, Muslim scholars say that swallowing unavoidable things such as one’s saliva doesn't break the fast.
In his response to your question, Dr. Wael Shihab, PhD in Islamic Studies, Al-Azhar University, and the Head of the (English) Shari`ah Dept. of website, stated,
Fasting in Ramadan is one of five pillars of Islam. This fact is well-established by the Qur’an, the authentic Sunnah, and consensus (ijma`) of Muslim scholars.
On the authority of abu `abdur-Rahman `Abdullah, the son of `Umar ibn al-Kattab (may Allah be pleased with them) who said: I heard the Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings be upon him) saying, “Islam is built upon five [pillars]: testifying that there is none worthy of worship except Allah and that Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah, establishing the prayers, giving zakah, making pilgrimage (hajj) to the House and fasting the month of Ramadan.” (Al-Bukhari and Muslim)
Allah Almighty says, {O you who believe! Fasting is prescribed to you as it was prescribed to those before you, that you may (learn) self-restraint; (Fasting) for a fixed number of days; but if any of you is ill, or on a journey, the prescribed number (should be made up for) from days later. For those who can do it (with hardship), is a ransom, the feeding of one that is indigent. But he that will give more, of his own free will, it is better for him. And it is better for you that you fast, if you only knew. Ramadan is the (month) in which was sent down the Qur'an, as a guide to mankind, also clear (Signs) for guidance and judgment (between right and wrong). So every one of you who is present (at his home) during that month should spend it in fasting, but if anyone is ill, or on a journey, the prescribed period (should be made up for) by days later. God intends every facility for you; He does not want to put to difficulties. (He wants you) to complete the prescribed period, and to glorify Him in that He has guided you; and perchance you shall be grateful.} (Al-Baqarah 2: 183-185)
Regarding your question about swallowing one’s saliva while fasting, this doesn’t invalidate the fast as it is unavoidable. Scholars say that the following acts do not break the fast:
a) Bathing.
b) Wearing Kuhl.
c) Kissing one’s wife or husband if he/she is able to control himself/herself.
d) Rinsing: rinsing the mouth or nostrils with water provided that it is not overdone.
e) Swallowing unavoidable things such as one’s saliva.
f) Tasting food.
g) Taking injections.
h) Smelling flowers or wearing perfumes, etc.
i) Experiencing a wet dream.
j) Eating or drinking due to forgetfulness.
k) Involuntarily vomiting.
May Allah accept your and our good deeds!
Allah Almighty knows best.

At Karachi zoo, the sight of a woman is more exotic than the animals

Published: July 27, 2012
Women were banned from coming here after one was harassed 18 years ago. DESIGN: FAIZAN DAWOOD
It has been almost two decades since women were banned from entering the Karachi zoo over the Eid holidays. This year, too, won’t be any different.
The ban was imposed after a woman was assaulted in the zoo around 18 years ago. “Since then we haven’t allowed women in for first three days of Eid,” said Dr Kazim Hussain, the director of Karachi Zoological Garden. “There are so many people that it is impossible to keep an eye on everyone. No matter how hard we try, there will be too many people to handle. But this does not mean that the ban would continue forever.”
Zoo officials say that thousands of people visit the zoo because they have spare time on their hands. Almost all of them are from the socio-economic strata which find other modes of recreation a burden on their meagre incomes.
The zoo officials have considered restricting the entry of men in the zoo but haven’t implemented it for the fear of being dragged into court. “It would have become an issue of civil rights,” said another zoo official. “We tried and implemented that at Safari Park. But I am not sure if it will work at the zoo as well.”
He said that tens of thousands of labourers work in Karachi and they can only afford to either go to Clifton beach or the zoo, where the entry fee is only Rs10 for adults.
Poor security had already made the zoo a no-go area for women, even on the week days. But the three-day Eid holidays were the worst. Former mayor Mustafa Kamal tried to improve the security in 2007 and vowed to lift the ban but nothing actually happened.
When Bashir Sadozai took charge as the zoo director last year, about 40 city wardens were deputed there to assist the security guards who were outnumbered and overwhelmed with work. The addition of city wardens helped ease the burden on the security guards who had 25 extra pairs of legs to patrol the zoo premises. But when Ramazan began, all 40 wardens were transferred by the Karachi Metropolitan Corporation (KMC) to different road intersections to help traffic police regulate traffic.
The zoo administration has asked the KMC to increase the number of guards immediately. At present there are 33 security guards at the zoo’s payroll and they work in three shifts. This leaves just 11 guards for an eight-hour shift. There are five gates and each one is manned by one guard. “Two of them are on weekly holidays and among the remaining four at least one is always sick,” said a security official. That leaves only three guards to patrol the entire zoo at a given time. “Three men for patrolling 33 acres of land!” he exclaimed. “It’s just not possible.”
However, harassment of women is not the only security concern, says one guard. “People harass the animals even more,” he said. “They throw fruit, popcorn and even packets of juice into the cages.”

Sri Lankan at Risk of Being Beheaded for Praying to Buddha

A Sri Lankan youth employed as a domestic aid has been arrested in Saudi Arabia for praying to a statue of Lord Buddha, which is considered an offence according to Islamic Sharia law. According to the Bodu Bala Sena, the youth bearing passport no. 2353715 identified as Premanath Pereralage Thungasiri has been arrested by Umulmahami Police, which is a grave situation. While the youth is a Buddhist, the charge levelled against him is that he paid obeisance to the Buddha at the house where he was employed.
The Bodu Bala Sena organisation further said those employed in Muslim-majority countries are prevented from practicing their religious faiths, and if found to do so are punished severely. Recently a Sri Lankan woman was arrested for gazing at a child at a shopping complex, where she was accused of witchcraft, on the grounds that she had a black cord around her wrist.
On prior occasions too many Sri Lankan female domestic workers were forced to embrace Islam, and wear the traditional attire, while so far four Sri Lankan youth have been beheaded in that country. (Source: Ceylon Today)
Saudi Arabia is an Islamic theocratic monarchy where the religion of Islam is the official religion. Non-Islamic proselytism and conversions are illegal and conversion by Muslims to another religion (apostasy) carries the death penalty. Under Saudia Arabia Sharia Islamic law, children of Saudi parents are considered Muslim, regardless of the country or the religious tradition in which they may have been raised.

Online activists take over Twitter hashtag calling Saudi female athletes “prostitutes”

 | 27 July 2012 | 0 Comments
Saudi Twitter users use “Prostitutes at the Olympics” hashtag to defame Saudi women athletes.
CAIRO: On Friday early afternoon, a hashtag that had been circulating the micro-blogging site Twitter had been taken over by supporters of Saudi Arabia’s female athletes after having begun two days earlier calling the Saudi women “prostitutes.”
Wojdan Shaherkani (Judo) and Sarah Attar (athletics) are set to be the first women to ever represent the ultra-conservative Gulf kingdom at the Olympics, but they were met with online users starting the Arabic hashtag “prostitutes at the Olympics” in an effort to defame the two women.
However, on Friday, those in support of the two women had taken over the hashtag, showing their overwhelming support for the women.
One user wrote that “these women are heroes” and another said “we will never back down from our freedom, go Saudi women.”
The hashtag was widely condemned by most online activists as a sign of bigotry and prejudice against the Saudi women who are braving their conservative nation to compete in London.
Global Voices Online, an international media and online social media organization, reported that “Saudi Twitter user allegedly called Sultan Al Hilali” began the anti-women hashtag.
Although only a few showed support for the hashtag, it has heightened tensions in the country over women’s participation in sports.
Saudi woman Jumana Abdel Latif told that she hopes the women “can do us proud and begin to show that women can be athletes.
“I want my children to play sports and this is just the first step for women here in Saudi,” she added.
Activists have called on the Saudi government to investigate the hashtag and charge the person responsible for creating it.
